I hope you have all enjoyed your Sunday.
My day has been spent doing a bit more crafty sorting out. Today's mission being to empty and find storage places for a small box and basket of things that sit on a bookcase outside my craft pod. Who knew there was "fake wood" sitting underneath them LOL!!
But as always happens one job leads to another and then another .. .. but that's OK. They all count in the grand crafty tidy up campaign.
So with a bit more sorting done my attention was then drawn to Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge where we are encourage to use up our leftovers .. .. whatever they may be. Paper, card, wool, fabric anything goes (not sure if I have ever seen some left over veg used to make another meal but it might count LOL!!).
I spoke to my Auntie earlier who was going to be starting a 1,000 piece jig-saw puzzle today to occupy herself. For a few short moments I quite fancied doing a jigsaw .. .. but I let that idea pass and instead did a crafter's version of a jigsaw puzzle by paperpiecing a die to create this:
Absolutely everything except the base card came from my snippet collection.
Sentiment: Personal Impressions "PICS066" Wording Stamps
Backing Papers: GCD Studios - Ella Blue
Sizzix Die: "659133A" Moroccan Card Front
Memory Box Dies: "98261" Kaleidoscope Butterfly and "98260" Moonlight Butterfly
Versafine Ink: Vintage Sepia
My Trusty Sewing Machine
and that is me all done and a few more of my many snippets are used up. This style of card is great for using up some of our more "busy" or "ugly" papers .. .. not that my Ella Blue paper pad contains any of those. This still remains my most loved paper pad ever .. .. .. but it is getting very, very thin now after all the years of use.
Stay safe everyone and try to enjoy and make the most of each day.
